Massage therapy/manual therapy is a treatment modality to manipulate muscle and connective tissue. Poor posture, stress, injuries and other activities cause musculoskeletal dysfunction. Each massage therapy plan is tailored to meet the patient's unique pain condition or injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include the increase of blood circulation, localized reduction in swelling and relaxation of muscles, leading to reduction in pain. Massage has been been known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase a patient's range of motion, while aiding in a patient's recovery. River Forest Health and Wellness offers a wide range of massage therapy techniques that can help reduce the time it takes to recovery from injuries.
